Chances are, you've probably started to notice cannabidiol hemp oil, or CBD hemp oil, popping up as an ingredient in beauty products such as body lotion and facial oil. While it's definitely the buzzy beauty ingredient of the moment, a fad this is not: CBD-infused beauty products have been growing in popularity, with entire brands now dedicated to the healing properties CBD hemp oil has when used topically. But there are still a lot of misconceptions about CBD-infused beauty products, so here are some answers.
First, the big question you're wondering: CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning you're not going to get high from using any of these products. CBD hemp oil is sourced from hemp with lower levels of THC than marijuana, (which is responsible for an altered mental state) and high levels of CBD. It's also a rich source of fatty acids and other nutrients that benefit your skin. Studies have shown it can improve reduced barrier function, improve hydration, minimize moisture loss, and decrease inflammation.
Skincare brands are catching on to the benefits. Many of these products are geared towards CBD oil's anti-inflammatory benefits because the primary receptor for CBD (CB2) is found on immune cells, which is where inflammation takes place. This is major because many skin conditions are connected to inflammation, which is why there are so many conversations about the power of CBD in the beauty industry right now.
Research on CBD oil and its benefits is ongoing, but note the ingredient's ability to regulate cell growth, reduce inflammation, and stimulate important fats in the skin and sebaceous glands could help inform treatments for other skin issues, such as dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema.
Beyond beauty products that you can use at home, we are looking to include CBD oil in some of the Innovative Treatments Julie Lindh offers.
Cannabis beauty products are certainly worth a try. The benefits are strongly supported by several pilot studies not to mention that many users swear by them.
